A big THANK YOU to all of our parishioners and friends that helped to make the Christmas Gift Fund a huge success. The fund, which ran the entire month of October, raised over $7,300.00! Once again, the generosity of our Assumption family will provide a very special Christmas for all of the children at Sun of Hope. In addition to the usual gifts of toys, sporting equipment, books, etc., it was suggested to Sun of Hope that because the monies raised were such a tremendous amount that they use some of the donations to purchase livestock that will provide ongoing nourishment for the children. The Holy Spirit Sisters loved this idea and they will be purchasing two cows so that the children have milk to drink on a daily basis! This is truly a wonderful gift from all of you and will ensure that the children are provided with the nourishment they need to grow up healthy and strong! Thank you again!
